• Anonymous Fraud Letter – St Vincent’s Hospital Toowoomba – 5th May 2015
  • “Unusual Practice” anonymous tip off email (see below) received by a health fund. Did not affect them at all, but may affect other health funds:

    “To whom it may concern, I would just like to bring something to your attention, and I’m not sure if it is fraudulent practice or not, but a physiotherapist in the Scarborough area (please note exact details have been provided- unsure if I should be providing this due to Privacy), seems to be claiming health fund rebates under podiatry codes for selling orthotics. I don’t know how he’s doing this but I rang up and the assessment and prescription of the orthotics is done by the physio, not a podiatrist. I thought it would be worth investigating at least.” – 27th May 2015
